Brighton Boulevard Segment 1 Opening Celebration

After 617 days of work and 42 million pounds of materials, segment 1 of Brighton Boulevard is operational. On June 21, over a hundred people came to celebrate the project at Denver’s own Great Divide Brewery. The celebration was a strong collaboration between the RiNo Art District, Denver Public Works, the NDCC, and all the surrounding businesses. Even the RiNo mascot and Gora Gora Orkestra band came to support!

The extensive project has taken 18 months of construction and there still is some minor work to be done, but the road from 29th – 40th streets is open. Working and living through construction has not always been easy for residents and businesses along Brighton, but the city and the community worked together to overcome these challenges and bring a project that benefits Denver all together. With the new improvements Brighton will continue to be an economic and industrial hub in Denver, and a social hub too.
